118pp. Octavo [24 cm] 1/4 black cloth with black paper covered boards, a metallic purple ink stamped title on the spine, and a gilt stamped ornamental pattern on the front cover. Very good plus. The spine is just a little rolled back. In a very good dust jacket, with heavy fading to the jacket's spine.
A collection published on the fiftieth anniversary of the beginnings of the Beat Generation- that monumental encounter in New York City in 1944 between Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, and William Burroughs. From the jacket- "The poems in Cosmopolitan Greetings are vintage Allen Ginsberg; fresh, hopeful, full of humanity and soul in the face of the darkness of our times."
